  • Description:  Galle Town, shop in Old Market. More often than not, I see myself using a camera purely as a tool to record things and people that interest me. I honestly see very little 'creative' input going in! This is a perfect example - an old traditional Curd and Honery shop in the south of the country. The curd is stored in folded palm fronds and hung from the ceiling. The fresh curd comes in each day in terracotta pots - to be used once and the thrown away. Nothing for sale in this shop is imported - local products, look out for the drums suspened from the ceiling. The bottles on the counter contain bees honey and the wrapped balls contain 'jaggery', a hardened treacle which serves a sugar. Today, nearly all the small shops around the country have shelves filled with products produced by the big multinationals, the local shops have nearly dissapeared. After twenty years of takiung pictures, I more and more discover how the passage of time adds to the interest of a simple image, Sri Lanka.
